Greetings folks,

I came home last night after a holiday family visit to open my last Chrismtas gift, the super cool 12th Anniversary EDC prize of the Leatherman Sidekick & Croc pack. It shoulda been there before the holidays, but USPS decided that getting lucky enough to win it is enough. Not so lucky to get it before the holidays. But arrive it did!

This is my first Leatherman, though I have friends who have them and swear by them. And now that I have one in my hands, I can see why they all swear by them. This thing is incredibly sturdy!

I've had my share of Swiss Army knives, a few other pocket knives. This one is definitely a tool of a different kind. Very strong emphasis on the tool. Everythin about how it's built says I'm a tool to be used and abused, I can take it all. All metal construction, useful tools (some of the Swiss Army knives certainly have some questionable things on 'em). Very thoughtful design - most of the tools require the leatherman to be opened up to the full pliers mode, except for the knife and saw. Those you can access with the thing folded up. And both of those have frame locks on 'em, so they'll stay in place until you're done with them.

No polishing or fancy engravings, just strong sturdy metal.

The Croc looks really interesting. Just a hunk of metal, and in typical Leatherman fashion, a ton of uses for it. Metric and imperial wrenches, bottle opener, scraper. Possibly the world's most handy bottle opener. I suspect this will be Little Man's first training tool as there's no real sharp edges on this one. Plus it looks really cool, Little Man has a few stuffed croc's in his room. Once he's ready to graduate to real tools, I'll start him with this one and we'll build up from there.

Thanks again to Michael and Reto for organizing the EDC anniversary contest!
